This project will be carried out in collaboration with the China University of Geosciences – Beijing focusing on structural geology, geochronology, igneous petrology and tectonics of the Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture Zone in order to better understand the evolution of the Tibetan Plateau.
  Meat futures: socioeconomic geographies of livestock production and consumption
  Prof D Moran
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

Environmental and health concerns are driving a trend towards meat-free diets in many OECD countries, with significant consequences for agriculture, food supply chains, rural landscapes and livelihoods.
  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is shrinking as Earth’s climate warms. In fact, meltwater which runs off the ice sheet is expected to contribute ~10 cm to global sea level by 2100.
  Sun drenched or sun starved: Evaluating climate and ecosystem impacts of solar energy development
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rationale. Decarbonisation of energy supplies to mitigate climate change is triggering notable land take across the world. Land-use change is the greatest driver of decline in nature and therefore, such decisions risk trading global-scale climate change for local-scale ecosystem degradation.
